Thank you for this reminder of just how special it is to be pregnant and creating life! There are times especially when DH is being complimentary and sweet when I do feel like the Mother incarnate and it is a truly profound moment. I need to remember it more often when my back hurts and the heartburn is driving me nuts!!

My oldest gets like this when he is sick, part of me loves the snuggle time and the other part of me feels bad for liking the fact that he has slowed down for a bit! I hope your DS feels better soon.
Well we are finally back in Oregon and much to my delight the lilacs are in bloom here! I didn't realize that we had them here as this is my first spring in the Pac NW. One of the things I missed the most about living in the south the past 10 years has been lilacs.
I went to our local UU church for the first time on Sunday and I hope to be going to their CUUPS group this month. I am desparately trying to put myself out there so the Lady can lead me to friends. I am so lonely right now without my sisters back in TX.
My oldest is in awe of the "growth on the trees" and "growth all around" (his words) that he is seeing right now. We have had fun talks about how mother earth and all her creatures are waking up from winter's sleep and on our walks we are focusing on finding those signs. The return of the robins, the sound of the frogs again at night stuff like that. He is really enjoying it.
As for how we teach the boys about our spirituality DH and I just tell the stories to them that are appropriate to the season, and really help them to focus on what is going on with nature. I do have an altar, but it is a private afair for me and DH isn't even a part of that. But since they were newborns they have joined us in circle and ritual when ever possible. We talk about it and enjoy the time as we would without kids. CUUPS in TX was very child friendly and my sisters there and I would routinely do circles with our kiddos present, if not helping out.
Oh crap just saw the time! Gotta run and make dinner for the men in my life or there will be whining insuing any moment! Will post more later.
